Tuesday Tutorial - Holiday Hugs

 Happy Tuesday! This is Jeanette and I wanted to share how I created this Holiday Hugs card!

First, I chose some papers from the 6x6 Tartan Paper Pack.  This way I had a ready made color palette to work with.  The Warm Fuzzies Clear Stamp Set has contains all the images that you need to create a sweet little scene.  I stamped them all with a copic friendly ink and then colored them all in with copic markers.  Here are the ones that I used:

Santa Skin: E000,E00, E11, R20
Santa Hair & Beard: W1
Fluff on Hat: C00, C1, C3
Red Items: R08, RV14, R46
Green Items: G28, G46, YG03
Blue Items: B06, B04, B02
Dog: E31, E34, E35
Fireplace & Boots: C3, C5, C7, C9
Candles: B63, B66
Cat: E41, E42, E43

I then used the to create the background for my scene as well as a pretty scalloped border.  I adhered everything together and then added it to my card-base.  I chose to use 2 different patterns on my card but you might want just the one or even three or four!  The patterns in this pack are so divine that you'll want to use all of them.

Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment,which comes in the stamp set, with white embossing powder.  I believe that Santa hugs are still safe.
